HISD's Policy on Bullying

HISD encourages all students and staff to foster a climate of mutual respect in order to enhance the learning environment. In this sense, students should not engage in harassment conduct, which shall result in disciplinary action.
HISD prohibits bullying conduct which includes repeated, unwelcome and offensive slurs, jokes, or other oral, written, graphic, or physical actions related to an individual’s race, color, religion, national origin, or disability that harms another student’s physical or emotional health or safety.
According to HISD’s Student Code of Conduct, reports of bullying shall be made as soon as possible after the alleged act or knowledge of the alleged act so that the District’s ability to investigate and address is not impaired.
